Dr Gram Organic Quinoa Wholemeal Noodle contains whole grain ingredients. When you eat wholewheat or wholemeal, you are eating whole grains that still have the bran, germ, and endosperm intact; along with nutrients such as manganese and dietary fibre. Refined wheat on the contrary has little nutrients intact as the bran and germ layers have been removed. The fibre in wholemeal or whole wheat foods reduces constipation and actually helps in weight loss or maintenance. A diet rich in wholemeal or whole wheat helps to keep the heart healthy, reduces the incidence of gallstones in the body (which can be very painful), and is highly recommended for diabetics.
While there may be some who are gluten or wheat intolerant (e.g. celiacs), it does not mean that everyone is in the danger zone or that wheat products are unhealthy. It only means that we have to be more selective about what we consume and how it has been processed.
The quinoa grain which is known to be nutrient rich is high in protein, iron, magnesium, and dietary fibre as compared to other grains. It is the only grain that contains all nine essential amino acids required for tissue growth and repair as compared to all other grains.
Soak in boiling water for a minute or two to loosen the noodles. Use a fork to break up and untangle the noodles. Drain. Stir fry noodles with sunflower or coconut oil. Add the noodles to vegetables or meat in the last 2 minutes of cooking/stir frying. Use tongs to toss the quinoa wholemeal noodle until well combined and heated through.
